Could another flight of migrants be coming to Massachusetts?

Nantucket Police have issued an alert that a flight is set to arrive this week that has “many similarities to the flight and incident that occurred on Martha’s Vineyard” last month — when Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent dozens of migrants from Texas to the Bay State island.

Now another Massachusetts island could be seeing a similar migrant arrival.

On Friday, Nantucket Police Central Dispatch received a call from the Nantucket Memorial Airport Operations about a reported flight that’s scheduled to land on Tuesday.

“The purpose of the call was to inform the Nantucket Police Department that the reported scheduled flight had many similarities to the flight and incident that occurred on Martha’s Vineyard,” Nantucket Police said in a statement.

The charter company was contacted by Nantucket Memorial Airport Operations, and they reported the chartered flight is a business flight for a group out of Chicago.

“In the event there is an arrival of a plane carrying migrants, the Nantucket Police Department and many other Town departments have a detailed plan to manage such a situation,” police said.
